spacedface: very cool response. Thanks a lot. From Hunter's "Book of Daniel" (I accidently spelled it as 'Blood of Daniel' at first.... accidently..like a martyr):

"What shall be the end of this? How shall it pass away?
Get up, old Daniel, never mind, get up and go thy way
Further words are closed and sealed until the end of time
Many shall be called, each in his season
In wickedness of pride is lost the light to understand
How little grace is earned and how much given"

{from "Book of Daniel" lyrics; @Robert Hunter, 1968-2007]

Hunter uses the word "grace" in sixteen lyrics (at least) .."Touch of Grey" and "Wheel" are two of them. Check out the second set of the following show (no "Passenger" but I think you'll like the combination of tunes given the context of your reply);
1983-10-17 - Lake Placid, NY

Thanks a lot,

I lost my post...Even though I'm an 80s guy, I'm more interested in '68-69 and '72-73 lately...anyway I'm speeding arrow that show. I usually go for long jam sequences nowadays; this is the only show I really get song order:

I usually get caught in a dialectic between home or trucking, but I'll try your recommendation and see if I can see truth past vapors and the masks of God.

spacedface: ..that '83 definitely doesn't have the extended jams that you're into.. hopefully you'll still find some value in it. That '85 2nd set has a good combo of Barlow and Hunter -- thank you for the heads-up.

And get back truckin' on..."
